The Walking Dead will keep shambling along forever, either as new shows or spin-off movies

In news that seems like a perfect metaphor for a zombie show, AMC has teased that it’s working on a plan to keep The Walking Dead going—in one form or another—forever. That comes from Bloomberg, which says AMC is talking with “several large media companies” about plans to keep The Walking Dead brand alive for “another…

Today's extra-large Trailer Happy Hour will catch you up on all the Comic-Con TV trailers that you've missed

Welcome back to Trailer Happy Hour, where not all trailers are created equal. But even if not every promo or teaser—especially for TV—has the clout to make it at Comic-Con’s big Hall H, we still love them all, and pledge to gather them together in one safe place for you to conveniently devour. (That metaphor got away…

Fear The Walking Dead highlights how awful white people are

Fear The Walking Dead’s “cowboys vs. Indians” plotline has been fraught since it was introduced, because this isn’t a show that does nuance well. Unlike its predecessor, this spin-off is at its best when homing in on the Clark family and ignoring the larger “we’re the walking dead” human-on-human warring. The tighter…

Fear The Walking Dead bites off more than it can chew as things heat up

There’s a lot going on in the competent if slow “Red Dirt.” A little more than a third through this season, Madison and company have settled into the new location to face off against threats internal and external, none of them zombies. Madison once more shows off her ruthlessness, with her and Troy’s fully blossomed…

Fear The Walking Dead does right by its characters, even the ones you may have forgotten about

Last week, it wasn’t clear if Victor was having a premonition when Daniel Salazar, his “guardian angel,” gave him water as he sat locked in a cell. This week is dedicated solely to what happened to Daniel since the fire, where everyone assumes he died. I can’t say I was burning with curiosity about what may have…

Fear The Walking Dead course corrects with twisted kids in a new setting

Is this the same show as last week’s two-parter? “Teotwawki” is everything Fear The Walking Dead should be. There’s tension. There’s stakes. There’s a zombie head in a cage. It’s the strongest outing this lackluster spin-off has aired since its early first-season episodes, and it achieves this relative high by…

Fear The Walking Dead returns with all the elegance of a stumbling zombie

Every season of Fear The Walking Dead and its progenitor The Walking Dead take place around a central local: a prison, a farm, a hotel. At first blush of Fear The Walking Dead’s third season, it seems that the show is setting up a military base as the home/prison for our greatly diminished crew of Madison, Travis,…

Survival’s still the order of the day in Fear The Walking Dead season 3 teaser

At this point, everyone on Fear The Walking Dead has had to do some questionable and/or objectionable things to stay alive, even though the world’s not yet overrun with walkers. Even Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) has taken the life of a fellow impending walker-apocalypse survivor in order to protect a loved one. A new…
